Click on the link above. Follow the first thread and click on where it states "click here". This was taken last week aboard the QM2 during her crossing the North Atlantic. That is what I call a wave. By the way, by clicking on the link, I did not have to download the video clip. It opened my Windows Media Player.

That's a potential problem with outside cabins on lower decks. I remember having an outside cabin on the lowest deck on the Millenium and the ocean seemed like it was really close. I think it would have been kind of scary if the waves had been hitting our window.


Donuts, is there anything they can't do....

I can't get the link to work.. I suspect that this is the same wave that I reported on, in a thread, as an upcoming story on Inside Edition a couple of weeks ago. It was from the QM2 crossing.

When I was 15 (I won't say how long ago that was) I was doing a north atlantic crossing with my mom and sister on a Cunard ship. We were in a wicked storm. Everyone had been warned to stay inside, under no circumstances were any passengers to try to go out to a deck. Most people, including my mother and sister were in their cabins being seasick. I was lucky, I didn't get sick. However I sure wasn't going to stay with them.

I was up on the top deck wandering around and decided I should see if I could go outside. My god - talk about a stupid kid!!! I struggled the door open, put my foot over the ledge when two things happened at the same time. I saw a wall of water coming over the bow of the ship and at the same time a crew member grabbed the back of my shirt and hauled me back in.

Boy, did he lay into me!!! At that point, I was so scared from what I had seen, I didn't open my mouth.

The ships back then were a whole lot smaller than they are now.

That is something I will never forget.
